Very good Black Country ales pub with a great choice of beers. It is a long way from the old Green Dragon!
My only gripe is the row of locals the full length of the bar who made no attempt to give way to any other customers. That said I would call again due to the beer!

17 handpumps all in action on our visit, this also included 1 cider. This large Black Country ales pub was quite a labyrinth with the different levels and large choice of seating areas.
The pub was busy on our Thurs eve visit, what with the live music playing on the first floor and their curry night. We choose our beer from an illuminated beer board on the right hand side of the bar. I went for the Mantle Brewery Boho, which was top class and served by a smart and efficient young barman. All in all, this was a decent pub and I would be quite happy to spend some more time here, on a next visit.

This is a fairly typical Black Country pub with a huge array of beers and ciders. It's a split level room with carpets rather than bare floorboards and the bar on the upper level on the right. There is another level above which includes a dart board.
My one gripe about this place is that there are bar stools along the length of the bar and on my Saturday afternoon visit most of them were taken up. This made it far more difficult to get served than it should have been and to make matters worse the three on the stools near where I sat were droning on about football.
I couldn't be bothered to struggle to get to the end of the bar to read the blackboard so just looked at what was nearby. I noticed a couple from the Black Hole brewery but then spotted Celt Experience Bleddyn 1075 (£3.20). This was in superb condition.
I see from a review below that this is rated on the Dark Side as the number one West Midlands pub. It wouldn't get into my top 10 but it's still a pretty good place much like all the other Black Country Brewery pubs I've visited. It's a shame about the bar stools.
